Blogspot, known more commonly as Blogger, is a free platform that allows
users to create and host their own blogs. It has become quite popular
because the service is so easy and inexpensive. But as fun as blogging
is, wouldn’t it be even more fun if you could earn money from the readers
that visit your blog? Many people have learned to monetize their Blogspot
accounts effectively, which has enabled them to earn a passive income
stream for something they enjoy doing. Here are some tips that will help
you join them.

Choose a Niche

The most profitable blogs focus on a particular subject and rarely stray
from it. This strategy serves two purposes. First, it gives your blog a
consistent appeal to readers who are looking for material on your
subject. Secondly, by focusing on one niche you are much more likely to
be listed highly in the search engines for the subject. This means that
all of the traffic generated to your blog from search engines will be
highly targeted and interested in products related to your content.

Find an Appropriate Affiliate Program

If you have targeted the content of your blog correctly, then you will
know exactly what types of items your readers will be looking for. A
simple search in Google for “affiliate programs” will return a number of
vendors who will pay you a commission to sell products on your website.
The key however is to find one that offers products related to your blog.
Perhaps the most popular is Commission Junction, which literally has
affiliations with hundreds of companies across thousands of niches. But
no matter which program you signup with, do some research to make sure
they can meet your expectations.

Marketing Effectively
There are two primary ways to bring attention to affiliate offers on your
blog. You can take the easy route and post a simple banner in your
sidebar. This works well with high traffic blogs, but may not be
effective with limited traffic. The recommend marketing strategy is to
highlight your advertisers within your blog posts. This means reviewing
and discussing the amenities of your affiliate products while including
links to the products. The ultimate goal is to get readers to click on
your affiliate links where they will then make a purchase, and give you
commission earning in the process.

Be Creative

Always remember that consumers have become blind to saturation of
internet advertising. For that reason, the bloggers who are the most
creative are often the most successful. Just throwing up any old banner
and hoping it will attract shoppers might work once in a awhile, but in
the long run a little experimentation can yield extraordinary results.
Find ways to make your affiliate offers attractive to readers and you
will undoubtedly see the returns.

Blogspot is a fantastic way to build your own web presence without much
money or technical knowledge. Of course the whole experience can be
enhanced by learning to make money with Blogspot. While nothing will ever
replace the value of experimenting with different offers and programs,
following the basic guidelines in this article will help you get started
quickly.
